Kerr Foresaw Stoudemire's Knee Troubles
Steve Kerr agreed with the Phoenix Suns' decision not to extend a maximum contract offer to A’mare Stoudemire.
“Yeah, I was on board with it,” said Kerr, the former general manager of the Suns.
The Suns’ medical staff believed Stoudemire was a medical risk not worth taking.
“What I remember is our orthopedic surgeon Tom Carter saying that generally after six to eight years after a player has a microfracture there could be problems,” Kerr said. “We calculated he had a couple of good years left and that the back end of the contract could be a problem.
“You never know for sure but you go with your experts and in this case it was Dr. Carter.”
